Job Overview

Senior Archaeologist | £30,000 - £35,000 | Essex | Residential / Heritage | Permanent

And now for something a little bit different…

This is no ordinary housebuilder.  With a genuine passion and appreciation for architecture and heritage, this unique company has restored and re-purposed some of the UKs most unbelievable buildings which -without intervention – could well have been consigned to the history books.

As part of their work, they require a Senior Archaeologist to join their dedicated archaeology team with the ability to lead and supervise a team of archaeologists and provide technical support in the creation of their exquisite projects.

Senior Archaeologist – key responsibilities:

  • Supervising teams of archaeologists and providing technical support
  • Report writing
  • Post-excavation co-ordination
  • Conducting both evaluation and excavation
  • Working on sites across the UK requiring the ability to work away from home when required
  • Liaising with councils to ensure all Archaeology and pre-commencement conditions are signed off
  • Lead the business in regards to archaeological obligations

Senior Archaeologist – qualifications, skills and experience:

  • Experience of conducting both evaluation and excavation is essential
  • Experience of working on large scale infrastructure projects would be highly desirable
  • Proven experience of working in a variety of archaeological field methods, techniques and practices
  • Vast knowledge of excavation techniques, ability to plan and draw sections, take levels, fill in context sheets and prepare WSI, reports and archiving for the council
  • Ability to successfully work as a part of a team
  • Exceptional communication and interpersonal skills

For an experience and knowledgeable Senior Archaeologist, there won’t be many better roles around…
